Can you please attach a print screen or a screen recorder to have a better understanding? I don't know about what notification are you referring. Thanks

Tested on Mac OS X 10.12 with FF Nightly 54.0a1(2017-02-08) and I can reproduce this behaviour. I don't know if this is intended or not. I will mark this as new and see what developers have to say about the behaviour. Also in my opinion this sounds like an enhancement. Thanks for your screen shot.

I don't know off-hand, but it does seem like this integration would be in widget:cocoa. Markus, do you happen to know this?

It's probably in widget/cocoa/

Kit, would you like to take a look at this?

This seems consistent with how web notifications work in Firefox and Safari. Clicking on a "banner" style alert keeps it in the notification center until the app is closed, and it's possible to click on the alert in the notification center to trigger the same action more than once.

Given that it's consistent with web notifications, I'm inclined to say this is working is intended, and being able to bring up the same sent tab multiple times is a feature. I'd definitely be open to changing it if you feel auto-clearing is a better experience, though.
